Toolkits for Providers and Families of Children with Hearing Loss

The tips and tools presented here were collected as part of learning collaboratives that were funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Through learning collaboratives such as the Improving the Systems of Care (ISC) for Children and Youth with Special Healthcare Needs, the Newborn Hearing Screening Learning Collaborative, and Project ACCESS (Epilepsy), NICHQ and the MCHB developed a successful framework for partnerships among state Title V leaders, clinical teams and families in quality improvement work to assist CYSHCNs and their families. These collaboratives identified and tested a number of tools that families and providers could use to support quality improvement within systems of care.

Click HERE for a full introduction to the Improving Systems of Care (ISC) toolkits.

We have divided the most promising tips and tools developed in the ISC collaboratives into a series of toolkits.  The kits presented on this page are for parents and providers of children with hearing loss.  Please click on the links below to access the toolkit most relevant to your situation. Many of these tools and tips are relevant for all Children and Youth with Special Healthcare Needs, not just those with hearing loss. Please explore all of our toolkits, and let us know where we can make improvements.

We hope you find these tools useful and invite you to provide feedback to Karen Errichetti, Senior Project Manager for Evaluation, at kerrichetti@nichq.org.
